We've had a beautiful start to February, ok its cold but we've had lots of fine sunny days with clear blue skies and yesterday we sat outside in the sun having our lunch. The trees are full of birdsong and the Nuthatches are back at the nestbox they used last year. Barrie made four more nestboxes we just have to decide where to put them. All the wildlife are getting frisky we have a resident pair of rabbits back guarding the garden, two were fighting so hard they nearly ran into us when we were sat outside. One of the male pheasants is displaying at the females who just run off - there is still snow on the ground after all, what is he thinking. The sunsets have been spectacular, casting light on the mist in the valley turning it a violet hue and catching the tops of the larches a fiery gold.
